Criminal Justice

New Graduate Certificates in Justice Administration

The College of Saint Elizabeth is starting a new graduate certificate program with Saturday classes for law enforcement professionals. The program, to begin on March 18, will allow professionals to take courses in five-week intervals, and earn a certificate with completion of four courses.

For those interested, courses may be counted toward a full master's degree in justice administration and public service at the College. Three areas of specialization will be offered: leadership in community policing; cyber security investigation, and counter terrorism.

What Students Are Saying

Eboni Phillips, '16
"Wanting to get to the next management level, I reviewed my resume. A friend kept pushing me to finish my degree, but with a very full plate I felt I couldn't take it on. My friend had Dr. Ford call me to explain the BA/MA program at CSE. He also sent me the printed information. It took a few months before I decided I was ready."
